A woman who attempted to rob an elderly, partially sighted woman in her own home in Hartlepool was jailed for over two years when she was sentenced at court yesterday.
Nadine Casey, 37, was sentenced to 25 months in prison for a theft and attempted robbery on 3rd April this year, during which she injured the 81-year-old woman causing bruising to her wrist.
Detective Constable Lorene Haworth of Hartlepool CID said: “The victim in this case was targeted in her own home after she took pity on Casey and invited her in for a warm drink.
“Casey then attempted to steal from the woman, injuring her in the process.
“My thoughts are with the victim of this cruel attack, who will no doubt find it difficult to trust again or to feel safe in her own home and I hope that this sentence will offer some comfort to her.”
